LEXINGTON, Ky. - Kentucky twin freshman guards Andrew and Aaron Harrison will return for a second season to a stocked Wildcats squad coming off an NCAA championship game appearance.

Both had been mentioned as possible NBA first-round draft picks after leading Kentucky's remarkable march through the NCAA tournament. Aaron Harrison's clutch 3-pointers that beat Michigan and Wisconsin and put the Wildcats in the final were set up on feeds from Andrew, the point guard.

However, the twins said in a statement through the school that were returning in pursuit of another shot at the title; Aaron Harrison said, "last year's run was special, but we still have unfinished business."

The Harrisons rejoin 7-foot centers Willie Cauley-Stein and Dakari Johnson and forwards Marcus Lee and Alex Poythress in returning to the Wildcats.
